I will check this out. I am a huge SL fan and honestly lost interest in the tune from 93 on. The acoustic sound coming from Jer just didn't give it enough "umpth" for me. Word has it that new guitar was first used in Oregon late summer so this one could still have some kick.

Appreciate the rec

I found this looking for the Greil Marcus piece on it's "history".

As soon as I saw the thread, my first thought was 5/3/79. I just got a recent Charlie Miller transfer of the show and the version of Stagger Lee really caught me off guard. The boys really lay into it. Good call billydlions.

Try this one from one of Brent's first shows:

As you can tell from my name, this is one of my favorite songs.
